#008 Machine Learning for Medics 101 🤖 — Dr Chris Lovejoy (Doctor and Data Scientist ) Big Picture Medicine

    • Medicine

What’s AI? What’s machine learning? What’s deep learning? This week’s episode is a crash course on machine learning for medics.

Dr Chris Lovejoy is a doctor, data scientist and content creator. He runs some exceptional ‘machine learning for medics’ day courses in London which is where I met him — and he also puts out loads of great content on his YouTube channel and newsletter. He also recently published a systematic review in the BMJ titled: AI Versus Clinicians: a Systematic Review.

If you’re someone who has heard of concepts in AI and machine learning, but don’t necessarily understand them — Chris is the very best person I could think of to help explain them.

I sat down with Chris to go from zero -> hero in machine learning as it relates to healthcare. Hopefully you'll get a better idea of what some of the buzzwords and key ideas are, how you can interpret a medical machine learning paper — and where you can go to keep your finger on the pulse and to learn more.
